"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Project 52: week twenty-three

November 24-30

This week was one of those 'don't plan too much because the baby could come any day' type of weeks.....but here we are the last day of November and he still isn't here.  I guess he wants a December birthday.

 We had super duper special visitors on Monday.  Ally and Ryken came over for a visit to our house.  It was a such a delight to have them both here and for the kids to play.  Sweet Ally was so thoughtful she not only came with a strawberry limeade for me, but also two freezer meals for after baby comes.  She is such a blessing and always thinking of others. Truly blessed by her friendship. But now they are back in Fargo!
ALL 4 children are looking!!!!! That camera man must be a professional:)

Wednesday we broke tradition! We never have or want to ever again put up our Christmas tree before Thanksgiving.  BUT, we figure this year is an exception because baby brother was due the day after Thanksgiving.  We wanted to be able to take our time and enjoy putting up the tree with the kids so we did it the night before Thanksgiving.

Unfortunately this is the only picture I got of Elliana! She enjoyed crawling around getting into boxes.

SO fun to watch them decorate.  Declan kept putting on the ASU candy canes and footballs then would take them off and put them on again.  Raelynn loved putting the ornaments on, but would sort of just shove it on the branch.

And after the tree was up we enjoyed some hot chocolate! Raelynn's first time for that and she loved it, of course:)

Thursday was Thanksgiving....and I have no pictures! It was a fun day at Grandma and Tank's house.

Friday Daddy put up lights and Raelynn supervised in the chair:)  She was able to help with the bushes and had a fun time doing it, of course.  The house looks great--pictures to come!

This turkey is still cooking! 40 weeks here.  Happy Due Date.

Mimi came on Friday!!! We are SO excited to have Mimi here!!

Saturday Raelynn's buddy Josiah had his 3rd birthday party. So fun for all the little friends to get together.  They had a balloon artist--the best I've ever seen!
